Reverse Engineering, how do you get to the chip behind the black goo? Answered
There's a circuit I'm wanting to duplicate, and slightly alter; however that blasted black goo is covering the ic chip so that I can't find out what it is. (1) what is that black goo? and (2) How do I get past it?
Is it for heat management, patent protection (for all those modern day Edison's), or both? Either way, I just want to find out what chip is behind that confounded whatever-you-call-it.
